Tv Season Info

In an epic showdown, David and his friends battled his demon, ultimately forcing it from David's body. Unfortunately, Farouk found a new host -- Melanie's husband "Oliver Bird" (Jemaine Clement) -- and escaped. Just when they thought they'd earned a moment of respite, a mysterious orb appeared and took David away to an unknown place. With David and Oliver missing and Farouk on the loose, the team forms an unlikely alliance with their former enemy "Clark" (Hamish Linklater) and his well-funded government organization, Division III. Meanwhile, Amahl Farouk (Navid Negahban) is on a new path to attaining infinite and world-ending power.

Critic Reviews for Legion Season 2

All Critics (37) | Top Critics (10)

A brilliant piece of television.

Apr 13, 2018 | Full Review…

But it's a bold vision for a genre where conflict usually boils down to muscular guys beating on each other. And it's what makes this season of Legion among the most subversive television you'll see this year.

Legion insists that it has lots to tell us about who we are, but it's worth watching, mainly, to understand what it is.

Apr 4, 2018 | Full Review…

It's a dark, trippy corner of that universe, where time moves more slowly, but it's filled with moments and images you'll find nowhere else.

It is great news for fans of superhero and fantasy stories in general that there is entertainment as rare as 'Legion' out there. [Full Review in Spanish]

Jul 18, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Yet Legion shows true growth for the series, providing audiences with an even more uncanny look at the X-Men.

Oct 10, 2018 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

Either way, David going full tilt is an interesting place for the show (however unconvincingly it got there), because it opens up the narrative scope for season 3.

Aug 27, 2018 | Full Review…

Legion may not be the deepest show on television, but it is the most multi-layered, and far and away the most lavish.

Jul 13, 2018 | Full Review…

Legion has grown from "just" the most visually inventive show on television, to become a brilliant yet terrifying story about what it really means to entrust the fate of the universe in the hands of an unreliable protagonist with unlimited powers.

Jul 13, 2018 | Full Review…

Legion continues to distinguish itself from its source material through both its underlying themes and it's signature visual style.

Audience Reviews for Legion: Season 2

    Absolutely genius! One of the best comic book adaptations and most unique and original series you'll ever see.

    Season 2 is just as good as season 1, hard to follow at times, but that adds the flavor. Those who gave it's a low score are those who need cookie cutter generic trash
  • Jul 24, 2019
    Best Marvel tv show by a Legion sized number..
  • May 21, 2019
    Really solid finale.
  • May 12, 2019
    Like most shows, it's not as good as season one, but it's still great. This season tried a slightly newer style, which I respect, although, it failed me a few times. The first season focused on David losing his mind while everyone around him tried to help, whereas this season focuses on everyone losing their mind with no one to help. The plot is still great, and the characters are still the same, but this show just pushes the whole "as confusing as possible" premise a little too far. Despite its downs, the season has far greater horror, even more unique action (and dance fights), and a just as amazing season finale as the last one. I'm still extremely excited for season 3.

    One of the greatest tv show ever made. Story and cinematography is so amazing and the cast members are also good.

    Legion, based on the Marvel Comics, follows the story of David Haller - a troubled young man who may be more than human. The FX series Legion states its intention of blowing your mind with its visual mastery and challenging your ability to keep up with the tricky narrative . Spectacular. It's an engrossing trip down the rabbit hole, where you don't know what's real and what's not, but it's so well done, and so well paced, that at no point are you disinterested or bored. ...and the music. It's perfect. A surrealist psychotic piece of art! One of the best tv series out there.

    This is a cluster of a decent mind fuck. The cinematography combined with the intriguing script was blended in such a way that it gave the viewer a lot to think about. Plus the narration visit s some ideas and theories inspired by psychologists' research. This makes this series very special and original, but also brings a faulty pacing issue, which is due to the fact that a lot of the things are illusions or just ideas that are irrelevant to the main plot and just slow down the overall development of the plot. Otherwise it is the most intriguing and in some weird way interactive TV series, with an entertaining twists and characters. The nature of the mind boggling events made it even more fun to watch, which ultimately led to the whole series being unique, with great acting amazing directing, and super originality in every single term. Overall it is a very good TV series that has a big pacing issue, and for general audience most of the time too complex chronology and reality illusion balance.

    Really can't believe the Audience reviews are down for season 2 . This season is fucking fantastic ! Mind trip x10 Those who gave this season a low score have shit taste and like every other generic blueprinted shit thrown out.

    One of the highest rated shows on IMDb and Rotten Tomatoes, whoever decided to cancel this show should be fired.
